I just received an OTA to my Xperia Arc. The update downloaded fine and it started the update OK. During the update (I had the open box icon an 4 dots on screen) the phone just shut down and now it doesn't turn on anymore... Nothing happens if I press power button (it doesn't matter how long) even after removing battery.

Is there anything I can do. Is my phone permanently bricked? I thought they test these OTAs before pushing them out?

Let me guess, your bootloader is unlocked?
If yes, go to the Android Development section and flash the unbrick thing for fota bricked devices.

Flo95, yes. My bootloader is unlocked. I thought the OTAs would still work.

Thank you very much for pointing me towards a solution. Well appreciated!
